Hello. My name is Ed Green. In 2004 I was operated on after suffering acutely from Ulcerative Colitis. I now live my life with an ileostomy, wearing a stoma bag. I was fearful of what life would be like after the operation. I found out a lot of my fears were unfounded and that the surgery actually helped me live life to the full again. As this website develops I hope to encourage anyone who is facing similar challenges to the ones I have faced.
The Ileostomy and Internal Pouch Support Group website is a great place to find information, advice and support www.iasupport.org/about
